What impressed you positively?

"A lot: The curriculum. I believe they really train competent and intelligent students of the entire body...who specialize in/treat patients as dentists, but definitely understand the greater frameworks around their area of focus (head and mouth). The students were smart and honest and nice. The cafeteria had delicious food. The placement of the Health Center is a bit imposing from the bottom of the hill, but from the top/inside the views are far-reaching and beautiful. The school is very pleasant inside. Many recent updates. Copious windows and warm yellow stone walls make it very comfy and cheery inside. Nice lounges and labs. Dr. T treated us as intelligent adults. At no point did I feel like he was trying to 'sell' or pad up the school. He presented facts and valuable viewpoints/considerations in selecting a school. Interviewers asked reasonable questions and were nice about it when I had difficulty answering some of them." Report Response
